It takes great courage to accept a girl for who she is, not for what she has been through. Mathew Gilmour is a fine young man who is married to Elizabeth Smart. Elizabeth was the survivor of the tragic and horrific incident when she was kidnapped and sexually assaulted for nine months. In spite of her chilling past, Mathew is happily married and doesn’t take his wife for granted.
Married To His Longtime Girlfriend, Elizabeth Smart!
Mathew Gilmour lives a happily married life with his beautiful wife, Elizabeth Smart.
Elizabeth met Gilmour in their missionary year in France, where the likings between the two started from the time. In January 2012, the representative of Elizabeth announced that the couple has engaged and are planning a summer wedding. At the time, Mathew's name was kept anonymous, and it wasn’t until February when the world saw the first glimpses of the man.

Just over a month after their engagement announcement, the pair got married. Mathew took the wedding vows with Elizabeth on 18th February 2012. The bride wore a white lace dress while he showed off his family heritage in a tartan kilt with blue thistle. The duo got married at a Mormon ceremony in Hawaii. But for their second ceremony, they returned back to their hotel and had photographs taken on a lawn facing the ocean.
Their marriage news was kept wrapped up until the camera lens found Elizabeth flaunting a big diamond ring on her left hand.
